This place definitely brought a smile to my face on a cold, pouring down January night! The welcome was warm, the food delicious and service exceptional. I had duck ravioli broth (which I totally recommend), lobster with fries and tarte tatin. This place is great in the Summer when the windows open straight onto the beach, but it's equally lovely...

WestBeach is a popular restaurant not just for it's beach front location, but the excellent food. We had to book a table as you cannot just walk in, it is so popular. We had our dog with us so we sat outside on the veranda. After we ordered our meal they brought water for our dog! We ordered beer batter... More

We have been going to Bournemouth for breakfast on Christmas Eve for 15 years and never been asked to pay a deposit before. However we let the booking sit and I phoned to check the day before and it... More

Went to West Beach for anniversary lunch. Lovely window seat with great views of the sea. Great attentive service. Fish and chips absolutely the best. My partner had the pork tenderloin which was also great. We love this place and hVe joined the lunch club as we use it so much.

Lovely food, we have previously been here for lunch with friends before and the food was very yummy (lovely scallops!). Went for breakfast the other day with family and was not disappointed.

Ordered 2 fish finger sandwiches. Waited about 20 minutes them N had to go and find out what had happened to order. When it eventually came it was 2 pieces of white sliced bread with the fish inside plus some limp, brown lettuce - very uninspiring. To cap it all, my son was sick all night!!

Amazing location overlooking the sandy beach, sea and pier. Lots of choice on the menu and a great selection of daily catches and wine. We ate off the lunch menu - seafood stew and posh fish fingers. Both meals were delicious. I can highly recommend the apple tarte tatin! This is the second time we have eaten here and would... More
